  A Church Planting Network

PLNTD NetworkThis month we are pleased to announce the launch of PLNTD - a church planting network focused on establishing and multiplying confessional church planting churches who are distinctively Baptist, missionally driven, and doctrinally Reformed.  At the heart of PLNTD is the conviction that the Great Commission was given to the church, and the mature expression of a robust commitment to this commission inherently calls for a passion for church planting as faithful stewards of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  In the coming months, we will be explaining more about the vision and purpose of PLNTD, in particular our focus on resourcing, intentional relationship, and church-based residency centers.  To stay up to date on all future developments of PLNTD, we encourage you to subscribe to the website, follow PLNTD on Twitter, join our Facebook page, and sign up for our e-Newsletter.  Please pray for this new network, and we encourage you to join us in see local churches take greater ownership in the Great Commission through planting and producing gospel-driven churches!

Reason for the Season: Ministerial Reflections on Personal Grief, Suffering and Loss

Edited by Roger D. Duke and Bob R. Agee

"In the early days of my pastoral ministry, I began to learn that there is a hurt in every heart and in every home.  While the contributors to this book present many reminders of this tearful reality, they also testify that the grace of God is sufficient to sustain the followers of Jesus in a fallen, broken world."
--Donald S. Whitney, Associate Professor of Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, KY.
